Isaac Ruto leaves MPs dumbfounded

 

Isaac Rutto, a former governor of Bomet County, went before the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee of the National Assembly on Thursday for a background check after being nominated by President William Ruto to serve on the Judicial Service Commission.

After being nominated by President William Ruto to serve on the Judicial Service Commission, the former governor of Bomet County, Isaac Rutto, appeared before the National Assembly’s Justice and Legal Affairs Committee on Thursday.

The former governor disclosed his net worth during the screening to be 363 million, which he said was split between homes in Nairobi and Bomet, animals, land, and other things.

 

As a result, he is included to the group of Ruto’s employees who disclosed million-dollar net worths when applying for various positions.

 

 

The former Bomet governor is not a fresh or unfamiliar name; he is a seasoned politician who entered politics back in the days of the Independence party KANU in 1997 when he was chosen to represent the Chepalungu Constituency in the House of Representatives.

Although he disagreed with the late Daniel Arap Moi, a former president, he lost his seat in 2002.

Later, Rutto switched over to the Orange Democratic Movement party and won the seat back in the general elections of 2007. He served until 2013, when he was chosen as the county’s first governor.

 

In 2017, Rutto was running for the Chama Mashinani seat in the CORD alliance and lost to the late Lorna Laboso, who was running on the Jubilee party platform.

In 2022, Rutto attempted to recapture the seat from Hillary Barchok who took over after the death of Laboso, however, the wave of the United Democratic Alliance Party swept him and Barchock clinched the seat.

 

Apart from the appointive positions, the former governor also served as the minister of Environment and assistant minister of Agriculture.
